Publisher's Summary

Being given yet another pointless 'man manual' that told him 50 ways to tie a bow tie in under 30 seconds made James May certain there was a need for another kind of book. This book, in fact. He reckons there are nine vital things that a chap should be able to do.
Not stuff you can download from the Internet, but really important things. You never know when you might need to land an A330 Airbus, or deliver twins. And there may well be a moment when being able to play a bit of classical music on the piano is absolutely crucial to your success with women. So read, learn, and be prepared - you'll wonder how you ever lived without it.

Absolutely Ridiculous and Worth a Read!

Where does How to Land an A330 Airbus rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It's one of my favorite books! Being a fan of "Top Gear" on BBC, I was amused to see that 'Captain Slow' had written a mans guide to things they need to know. If you have ever watched the show you know that cars are often described as completely pointless but you must buy one and here's why. That's is book!! Very amusing , completely useless, and absolutely fabulous!

Mostly delightful . . .

What did you love best about How to Land an A330 Airbus?

May's penchant for detail is obvious in this book. I vacillated between fascination with the information he presented, amusement at his insane determination to investigate every little detail, and, only very occasionally a little bit of impatience at this endless detail. But running along it all is his fantastic dry wit, which is what really makes this so easy to listen to.

What does James May bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I really think that hearing May read this is the best way to experience it. Only he could deliver all of his little jokes in just the right manner to make them work.
